Day 9, Master Cleanse

Well, it's Day 9 of my master cleanse. I don't know if it's because I have spent the last 48 hours getting berated by the wicked witch of the Middle East, or what, but I simply haven't been hungry! I have had to force myself even to consume the lemonade (which Lauren calls Beyonce Lemonade, since Beyonce recently made this fast more mainstream...)! I'm getting excited about the prospect of eating again, but have no intentions of breaking the fast early. I'm in this to the end! :)

So far, I've lost about 11 pounds and 7 inches between my bust, waist, and hips. Most of my clothes aren't fitting, so I'm going to either have to buy a bunch of stuff, or do some serious alterations! This weekend, the POS is gathering to celebrate Kerry's conclusion of student teaching - we're all super proud of her! And that night will be the first day of being able to imbibe and eat, so I'm pretty jazzed. I think I should treat myself to a new dress!

Check out today's horoscope:

Instead of focusing so much on what would make you happier, spend some time thinking about what makes you unhappy -- whether it's the way a certain person treats you, your love handles or those dishes in the sink. Once you identify those targets, you can fix them -- and make yourself happier! So talk to that person, beef up your exercise routine and start cleaning up. Your happiness is in your hands.

That's great advice. I have communicated my thoughts and the unabashed truth to a certain someone that makes me unhappy, and hopefully that part of my life is put to rest now. I really, really hope so!

Hope everyone's doing well. Love, Mer

The Secret, as prescribed by Oprah and friends, states you should focus on the positive things in life. By thinking of positive things you will invoke the law of attraction.
